Years after the disappearance of her son a woman does everything to find him after a kidnapping that the justice can not solve. A mother never forgets and this one will do everything to find her son. Whatever the cost.
Slick well dressed Russian dudes forcing girls into a dirty lifestyle abducting them and prostituting them. That's what you'll get here. A lot of liberties taken (obviously, it's a movie so there has to be an aspect of entertainment) otherwise the subject matter would literally make the movie unwatchable (watch "Lilya 4-Ever" if that's what your into, though).
All the stuff about the sex trafficking is pretty interesting but hard to watch. It's not going to leave you feeling good, that's for sure. It may have the opposite effect, watching girls covered in dirt and cuts gets raped while they scream bloody murder, not exactly for everyone.
Definitely not a great movie (a bit confused why the baddies are Russian: not sure why it's necessary we sympathize with the evil characters so much: for sure it's focus drops and stops having the punch it started with).
Would have given it 5 stars but since it actually tries to spread some awareness gave it a little higher.
If you can stomach it watch this instead of some easily digested Hollywood movie, feels more rewarding.
